Face Coverage and Profile Specifications

In the milling process we true the board to help eliminate any bow as we are profiling the wood. The milling process will alter the face coverage of the wood due to the overlapping of the profile. Below you will find the links to documents showing the lap dimensions and face coverage of our standard profiles.

Relief Cut

We mill relief cuts on the back of the boards to create air circulation behind the siding and to help stabilize the board. Relief cuts are placed on all profiled materials. Relief cuts are also placed on 1″ thick square edge pieces that are 8″, 10″, and 12″ width.
